Spiritual Blindness

 “I was blind but now I see!”

(John 9:25 NIV)

After healing the man born blind, Jesus went on to talk about spiritual blindness. See, the devil can spiritually blind us to many things, but God is able to open our eyes so we can see the truth. Prior to his conversion, Paul, or Saul as he was then known, took pride in his zeal for God by persecuting other Christians, so he was blinded for a while. But when God opened his eyes, Paul was able to see the error of his ways. Jesus had the following to say about the Pharisees who claimed that they could see, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains” (John 9:41). God is still in the business of giving sight to the (spiritually) blind, so that they too can declare, “I was blind but now I see!”
